Campaigns and Activities
Our forests are amongst the most species-diverse habitats on earth. These tropical forests also store carbon and regulate our climate- and so are crucial in our fight against climate change.
The Barron River is central to the ecology that has sustained First Nations peoples for a thousand generations. Now it flows through some of the most intensively farmed land in the country.
FOEFNQ supports renewable energy. We want to keep NQ free of Coal Seam Gas mining and exploration activities. FoE FNQ supports the campaigns of Lock the Gate against gas in Queensland.
